“Fashion passes, but Style remains.” Coco Chanel
The world of couturier fashion can be a very fickle place, with trends constantly changing and people’s taste getting barraged with ideas or images from “today’s” hottest fashionista. But one of the very few constants in fashion is the Chanel label.
In all of her designs Coco Chanel drew inspiration from several everyday items that impacted her life. She often incorporated these in her clothing, handbags, shoes, and in the Chanel Eyeglass collection. For example the interlocking CC logo was seen in stained glass windows at the orphanage where she grew up. And the orphanages’ nuns would keep their keys on long chains that they often wore as belts. Coco applied chains to bags, shoes, apparel, and eyeglasses! Her favorite flower was the Camelia, another frequently used decoration. Some of the other iconic Chanel concepts, including her love of tweed or leather, so these also are used throughout her designs.
Coco Chanel passed away in 1971. Her absence was filled for many years by the genius of Karl Lagerfeld, who created beauty while staying true to the original style ideals. Today the “House of Chanel” still leads in every aspect of the fashion world, including eyeglasses and sunglasses under the leadership of Karl’s protege, Virginie Viard.
Every Chanel eyeglass or sunglass frame, whether it is a one-off runway piece, or a simple, elegant, every-day cateye, incorporates some of the recognizable design details with superior quality materials, a generous warranty, and timeless style.
